Caturday Cookie Break

Standard

Howdy Gang!

Happy Caturday……………My bacon breakfast is out of the way (yum) and now I’m taking a bit of a cookie break. I DO love my “treats” which Mom and Dad call “cookies” and that’s the word I recognize when Dad shakes the bag.

Sam On His Cookie Rug

I get my cookies on a floor mat by my Dad’s chair.

I’m not allowed to eat them anywhere else because – well – frankly I can be a little sloppy with something crunchy.  Those little bits break when I take a bite and go everywhere – this way they stay on the little rug.  I’m quite fastidious about my little crumbs though – I may leave them after eating my cookies but I almost ALWAYS come back and “clean up” !!

I try to be neat.  Most of us kitties try……..we might not always QUITE make it but we do try – honest we do.  I can be a bit of a slob at my soft food dish too.  Something about slurping up food from a bowl – well you’re BOUND to have a bit of oversplash right?  Am I right gang?

Sammy Having Breakfast

I’m trying to be neat Mom….honest I am!

I’m even extremely neat (mostly) when I play with my toys…….I keep my toy area rather organized (well……I TRY to) so that I can go to it any time I want and get one of my favorites out.  Mom’s really good about going through it from time to time and mixing things up so I think some of the stuff I haven’t seen in a while is BRAND NEW!!!   Humans can be so sneaky but it works.

My toy box is actually a toy WAGON!

Pretty neat huh?

Well you get the idea……….taking a cookie or food or even a toy break doesn’t have to mean MESS.  No sireeeee………we kitties prefurrrrr things to be neat and orderly (except maybe when it comes to sleeping on YOUR bed and then the messier the covers are the better!!!!!).

Hope you all have a super Caturday…………..whatever you do – try to be NEAT about it OK?  We kitties have a reputation to maintain you know!

Kitty Hugs, Sammy 😀 😀

Before I go, I have a sad p.s.   Yesterday I learned that Nibbles from Hutch A Good Life went to the Rainbow Bridge on July 1st.  Nibbles was my very first guinea pig friend.  I really didn’t know anything about them before I began following the Hutch blog.  I am so very sad for all of them and all of us too because we will all miss Nibbles.  Please send hugs to his humans AND his brother piggies because life will be ever so diffrerent without Nibbles.    We will miss you Nibbles……..

  1. Awww, so sad that your little friend crossed the rainbow bridge. I’ll hop over to send some hugs 😦
    Sammy, I have a present for you waiting on my blog. I hope you like it. Happy Caturday. Pawkisses, Little Binky 🙂

  2. We have five cats and they can be rather messy with food. Luckily Edgar goes round the bowls and tidies up all leavings – if he misses anything, the dogs do a quick hoover and the place is spick and span 😀 Thanks for warning us about the sadness over at Hutchagoodlife – Nibbles will be dearly missed.

    • Good for Edgar being on clean-up duty! Having a dog for “back-up” on the food bowl patrol is lovely too – you don’t need to get the “Monster” out when you have a dog! Yes, Nibbles was a special little piggy….and you know his Mum and brothers are very sad now.

  3. I’m more the chaos-guy and I’m always happy when I find some crumbs I’ve lost some months ago. I’m very sad that Nibbles had to go, I will visit his bloggy immediately. Have a wonderful caturday, Sammy.

    • Hi Easy! Loved your car harness review today – good job buddy! I thought that thing looked QUITE macho…. I’ll have to try your method of finding extra snacks like old crumbs around on the floor. Sadly my Mom swabs the deck like a sailor every week so the chances of crumbs on the loose is probably slim. Sad news about our little piggy friend Nibbles.

        • Easy I do think you are amazingly patient with your staff there in your crib. I know what you mean about losing our friends lately. I saw the beautiful tribute Thunder’s Mom did this morning and Mom and I shed a few tears together. Nibbles was my first piggy friend EVER so it was sad too. You and I should make a pact to stay here FOREVER (besides won’t it be fun to drive our humans nuts for YEARS AND YEARS???!!!!).

  4. We missed this sad news about Nibbles. 😦 We will go over and check things out at Hutch. Mom goes a step further with my toys. When my toybox started overflowing, she put half of the toys in a bag in the top of the closet. Now and then, she switches the closet toys back into my toybox and puts the other half in the closet. It’s like a whole box of new toys every time!

It was nice of you to light a candle – that’s a pretty neat thing to do isn’t it? First time we’d seen it.

    • Well with as many of YOU as there are in comparison to the humans around your house I think you have your situation well in hand (I mean PAW). I do have a ridiculous number of toys in my toy wagon but Mom and I go through them from time to time and the ones I turn my pinky nose up at go in a bag which in turn goes to the shelter for the kitties there! Good luck with your protest!

      • Sammy, you are such a good kitty to do that. Our friends at Barn Cat Buddies recently posted a photo of one of the foster kitties up for adoption. Guess what he was playing with? A catnip pillow just like the ones Mom made for you. Mom makes them to help raise money for BCB, but lots of them go to the foster kitties. We guess that means we’re giving back as well ’cause we think all of those nip toys should be ours. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

Whee are hoping to get back to posting in the next few days and are making our rounds on the blogs to thank everyone for being so kind. Whee are glad efurryone liked the candles idea. Whee saw someone do it on twitter for a doggy and thought it would be the perfect way to remember him and give efurryone a chance to say their goodbyes.

    Whee are also messy eaters here. Not sure about you but the hoomans here are always complaining when whee kick bits of food out of the cage!
